This Tuesday, purchases at Whole Foods Lakewood will do more than buy groceries. On Jan. 11, Whole Foods hosts its monthly community giving day, and 5 percent of the store’s net sales between 8 a.m.-10 p.m. will support REAL School Gardens in its creation of a learning garden at Lipscomb Elementary School. (You may remember reading about the garden in this March 2010 Advocate story.)
